all the manufacturers are doing now to conserve water. this is a siphon flush with a larger water surface area, much more conventional american type of toilet. it has been used around the world for many years as a water- conserving light of flushing. it has a small water surface area and is a wash down type of toilet. some americans are not happy that they might have to clean the sides of the ball more. then, we have the high end totally automated toilet as you were already noticing. when you walk up to it, it will sense that you are there and it will open up. it has another green feature, which washes you. it saves you on toilet paper. a roll of toilet paper can take as much as 28 gallons to be manufactured, so if you conserve on toilet paper by using water to wash yourself, you are saving the waste material of the toilet paper. >> does that count toward the flesh? >> it does not. >> how much water does it take? >> it takes just a few ounces. tens of how long the user leaves it on. it has a remote control that allows you to be able to control the spray features. it has a rear-cle
? >> and a lot of manufacturers are real -- are already making those toilets. right here, we have a dual-flush toilet. this toilet uses 1.6 gallons on the full flush and 0.9 on the half less. >> what happened? >> it automatically opens. this is a fancy toilet. we can get to that later. >> this is the half loss, which is how many? >> 0.9. so it is very good toilet, water-saving. and then the other kind of toilet that saves water is and 1.28 gallons a flush. >> i know when people first started selling and installing the 1.6, there were problems with it was not clear in the bowl and all of that. have those generally been resolved? >> yes, they have come out with a lot of new technologies, and the flushing systems are a lot more powerful. this toilet in particular has the new double cyclone feature, which shoots out of the rim and the bowl. let's look at it. shoots out here and here, so it cleans the ball really well as f
. >> from the dbi and planning. [inaudible]. >> no. it either has to be flushed or high enough for a blind person to detect it. ask also we would look at the remaining paths of travel. typically, a foot of a properly done tree well, properly done. this is not properly done. either has to be flush with the sidewalk. could be a tree great and that could be used as the top of travel. >> minimum of 4 feet, that is required by american with disabilities act. at pinch point where you have situations like street light poles, no parking signs or things like that, that 48 inch can be reduced to as little as 32 inches. >> how does that comply here. what would -- >> they would have to either raise this, >> how high is this >> about a foot. there is no regulation as far as height. >> [inaudible] has to allow water to pass through it. 6-15. >> 6-15 inches high and allow water to pass through to meet the new [inaudible]. okay. >> is that 4 feet wide you are standing on? >> right here? >> the trick is most are roughly 39 inches by 39 inches much that looks like a 40 tops. may be i'm wrong. >>
that for toilet flushing and combination of those two systems we are targeting right now a 49 percent reduction in the water demand at the transit center over what base line would be. so by capturing that storm water, using natural flushing, recycling water from the sinks for flushing we are going to see a significant drop in water demand at the center >> and just what that translate into his in terms of total water demand. here you see the base case projection and what our current design is for the water demand at the transit center. but that annual savings of almost 10 million gallons a year is the equivalent to 115 u.s. house holds. so the significant water reduction that we are seeing at the transit center. and the other thing that i wanted to highlight in the water picture is because of the park, and its ability to absorb water and then whatever the water it does not absorb being diverted into the gray water system our combined sewe r, discharge is an 81 percent reduction over what it would otherwise be. >> that gives you an update of how the design has evolved since january of 2011 to now
, to go out for bond levies, to deal with a situation that most people don't even see. it flushed yesterday, it flushed 10 years ago, what's the problem? narrator: atlanta is a rapidly growing urban area. its primary source of drinking water is the chattahoochee river, which also provides water to many downstream communities. but its infrastructure is dangerously old, without outdated facilities and combined sewer overflows polluting the watershed. the city faces strict consent decrees and lawsuits, along with a severe lack of funding. man: when i started working for the city of atlanta in the late '70s, we were approaching that point in time where a lot was going to be needed, in terms of rehabilitation and upkeep. most of the very large pipes were at least 80 years old. we had needs that were identified in the '50s and in the '60s and in the '70s that were deferred. woman: we are urging that we all try to find a way to overcome the obstacles and limitations that might exist. woman: when i was running for office, i met someone who knew mayor hartsfield, who, in the late 1960s, sa
mentioned -- we probably won't have the fully flushed out program because we're just getting the contractor on board but we can use that day to describe our intentionos that education and notification program. okay. >> and i am wondering if there is a way -- i'm not sure what the time lines we're looking at for opt in versus opt out. i think it makes a lot of sense for those to have a opt in for those that want to and those that want it earlier you could have their testimony for the outreach. that could go towards the information people get to opt in or not or stay in and have those testimonies available i think would be very helpful and certainly as we go down the line and the second or third process would be good for that. >> sounds good. >> and we took note of that at the supervisor's hearing and there were requests for opting out, and part of the marketing and outreach campaign will include discussion of that. that was one of the things that was tagged or targeted with the consultant is coming up with that kind of a program, the opt in and the opt out and how to maximize that, so we
for non drinking uses and irrigation and toilet flushing. in san francisco we're moving forward with the implementation of our program. we have three projects here in the city. we have the harding park project and the reservoir and pump station that is used to pump water produced by daly city and we have the next water project and produce 1.6 million-gallons of recycled water for golden gate park and presidio park and the golf course and we have a project to deliver 2 million-gallons a day of recycled water. so again just to circle back as to why we're doing recycled water. recycled water lets us devote drinking water for the highest purpose which is drinking, and using recycled water for irrigation and toilet flushing just makes sense . the city of san francisco is devoted to this project and began in 1991 with the recycling ordinance and had large developments have this type of pipe for this. it was endorsed again in 2009 with the park amendments which called for maximizing water use efficiency and using non portable water on park properties. recycled water is reliable

a constant, unlimited supply of water delivered straight to the tap, or without their waste flushed immediately away. i think people often forget -- because, you know, water utilities have made it very convenient for people to get water -- how important this is. man: in terms of water supply, wastewater, stormwater development -- these are independent technologies. but what came first, most often, was a water supply system. the basic system is essentially the same as we used back in the 19th century. and in some cases, some of the same pipes. grusheski: philadelphia was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. n

for landscape irrigation and indoor toilet flushing. the pumps can only handle so much water, which is generally when it's not rain, the dry-weather runoff, so if you get a storm of a decent size, the pumps will shut down automatically and the water will just continue to flow out into the ocean and it carries a lot of bacteria and people can get sick when they're swimming in the water near a flowing storm drain. everyone knows you don't go in the water for 72 hours after it rains. you just don't. this is the dirtiest beach in southern california. doheny beach. i've surfed this twice -- i've gotten sick both times. narrator: san juan creek, a concrete flood control channel, flows directly to doheny beach. moriarty: the concrete you can almost think of as a big water slide for pollutants to go to sea level. man: if it rains more than 2/10 of an inch, the county puts out a health advisory for all beaches in the county. that totaled 75 days in 2006. so it's sort of a frightening thing that it's so polluted that every time it rains, we have to stay out of the ocean for three days. moriarty: to be sic

flushed out recommendations and brought them forward to the arts executive committee where we went through every finding and every recommendation. then the executive committee took it to the full commission at the october 1 full commission meeting, to the full commission then had the opportunity to dive deeply as well and answer any questions, ask any questions of me or of staff or of each other in terms of the policy implications. i think the most important next step will be moving forward in a comprehensive community engagement and strategic planning process. one of the things the arts commission has faced is lack of articulated plan that was developed for and by the community at large. so we are committed, and are in the process of beginning a very comprehensive strategic planning and community engagement process, that i think will address a lot of the issues around community engagement for instance in our cultural centers. one of the deliverables for that planning process will be a 10 year capital plan for all of the arts commissions assets including our four cultural center buildings
